South-eastern Glossy Black-Cockatoo Bushfire Recovery

South-eastern Glossy Black-Cockatoos had around 38% of their range impacted by the 2019–20 Black Summer bushfires. This project supports the post-bushfire recovery of the species in East Gippsland by protecting their short-term food supplies and increasing their long-term food security.

The 2019–20 Black Summer bushfires burnt large tracts of the trees that South-eastern Glossy Black-Cockatoos need to survive, such as the she-oaks they feed in. By restoring their habitat, we can help these birds survive for generations to come.
